To St Margaret
Henry Constable

Fair Amazon of heaven, who tookst in hand
St Michael and St George to imitate,
And for a tyrants love transformed to hate
Wast for thy lily faith retained in band:
Alone on foot and with thy naked hand
Thou didst like Michael and his host, and that
For which on horse armd George we celebrate
Whilst thou like them a dragon didst withstand.
Behold my soul, shut in my bodys jail,
The which the drake of hell gapes to devour!
Teach me, O Virgin, how thou didst prevail!
Virginity, thou sayst, was all thine aid.
Give me then purity instead of power,
And let my soul, maid chaste, pass for a maid.
